  • Its a swollen lymphnode, go to the hospital! BAD infections cause that to swell up, over the counter meds wont do anything and you will just get worse. Go to the hospital now.

  • Everyone I know going through those symptoms have been swollen lymphnodes. So like the Previous poster said it's time to go to urgent care and get some anti biotics. Good luck and hope you feel better

  • What medicine have you been taking? Have you had a fever? Any rashes, even a little? Can you see anything in the back of your throat like swelling or white? Have you had momo?

  • If you don't have insurance I don't think you need to waste your money on going to urgent care or the ER. A low grade fewer and swollen lymph nodes probably doesn't need antibiotics if that's all it is. I meant mono not momo.

  • Have you ever had tonsillitis as a kid ever? or ever? Some of your symptoms say tonsillits but I couldn't be sure. Ear or throat infections will give you some of those symptoms as well.

  • I dont have any rashes of anything, ive never had mono, and ive been takin tylenol cold multisymptom and using throat sprays and throat lossenger things, I dont have any insurance, and living with my grandparents. Its up to them if i can go to the hospital and i told her what everyone has said but she isnt believeing it

  • "Symptoms of mono include fatigue, sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, and fever."

    I have a genetic immune deficiency disease and get a lot of infections. Most people get mono only once, I've had it 3 times. What you are describing is how mono first feels. There is not much to do for mono except rest.

    Don't let others scare you. Swollen lymph nodes aren't a big deal and it's not serious. You are putting yourself at risk of catching something at the ER.
